10 Quick Facts About
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
June 29, 2023
Coined in 1956 by John McCarthy, 'Artificial Intelligence' is a field dedicated to creating machines that mimic human intelligence.
Machine Learning, a subset of AI, involves systems learning from data to improve performance over time.
Supervised learning, a ML method, involves training models on labelled data to make predictions.
In unsupervised learning, models find patterns in unlabelled data.
Reinforcement learning systems learn to make decisions through trial-and-error, aiming to maximize a reward signal.
A type of machine learning, deep learning utilizes artificial neural networks to model complex patterns.
From autonomous cars to voice assistants, AI has myriad applications in today's world.
Neural networks, inspired by the human brain, are key to modern AI systems, helping to process and analyze large data sets.
The use of AI and ML raises crucial ethical questions about privacy, bias, and job displacement.
Some theorists anticipate the advent of 'superintelligence,' an AI that surpasses human capabilities.
